America To Long-Term Unemployed: Drop Dead

Post by Guest on Tue May 29, 2012 2:29 pm

Good news, people who have been unemployed forever: You're getting your jobless benefits cut off, which means the wealthy will get to keep their tax cuts, which means they will be creating jobs for you any minute now.

Meanwhile, there's also good news for factory workers: You know those jobs you wanted to get back from China? Well, you're getting them back. The less-great news is you're getting them back at lower wages, the Wall Street Journal writes. Hey, what do you expect? We've got to keep wages low to compete with the Chinese. At least there is one piece of actual, non-sarcastic good news: Gas prices aren't rising any more.

Everything's getting redefined:

1. Who says a living wage has to be $20/hour?
2. Who says an employer has to provide affordable health care to its workers?
3. Who says an employer has to set up a pension for its workers?
4. Who says a standard work week has to be only 40 hours?
5. Who says the retirement age has to be 65 (or 70)?

It goes on and on. Our whole standard of living is being redefined/lowered because of this global economy. It's a total disgrace!

those things are all benefits derived from Union activity.....which have been in decline since ronald reagun and PATCO......

we now have the OOPS factor as never before....while we small people struggle to make small contributions to bankers-financiers overall profit
by taking ever diminishing wages, thereby keeping "costs" down.....

they have 10-20 times the total amount of all the "wealth" in the world tied up in fancy derivatives that nobody understands....

with trillions tied up the daily fluctuations can be in the billions....its very hard to make a dent in all that "paper loss" at a couple bucks per hour...

wish i could find the source, but was reading the other day about "trickle down" economics and seems there was literately only a few out of hundreds of economist that thought the idea had any merit. but the money people PAID the politicians to push the idea....at the time Keynesian politics was the norm...followed even by Nixon....

trickle down was the policy practiced in Victorian times.....and WE still have the republicans wanting more......it is the Keynesian people who now have the solution and nobody will listen....

its debatable whether the gulf between rich and poor is wider now or in the previous era of "trickle down"

And if your company has a life insurance policy for you, be careful that it isn't the "dead peasants insurance" they have taken out on you so they are the beneficiary.
